Society Prize Winners | CNSF Congress

Congratulations to the 2021 and 2020 Society Prize Winners! 

With the cancellation of the 2020 Congress in Banff, and the 2021 Congress in Toronto, we have missed the presentations of these prize winning papers.

The abstracts from these submissions, and all other CNSF accepted abstracts for the 2021 Congress, are published within the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences (CJNS) November 2021 Abstract Supplement, available on Cambridge Core.

We will look forward to presentations at the Chair’s Select Abstract sessions in June 2022 in Montreal.
